Doing moreThe saying goes, 'to understand someone, walk a mile in their shoes'. At St Patrick's Primary School in Nanango, Queensland, students have gone further. Last year, as part of the Caritas Be More Challenge, they spent 12 hours walking while carrying bottles of water in order to understand the lives of children in Africa.
